As 2010 comes to a close, I want to personally commend the efforts of our bloggers and guest bloggers at CureTalk. These articulate, and intelligent writers of CureTalk make our blog what it is and the least we could do was to dedicate a ‘Thank you’ Blog post to them. They are the lifeblood pumping passion, intelligence, and personal stories through the arteries of CureTalk. They are all incredible writers and draw from deep wells of experience in the clinical research world.
Our Cure Talk bloggers each offer unique perspectives into the clinical research field, whether it is Cynthia’s blog on minority participation in clinical research, or Jaya Tiwari’s piece about the incredible world of lung transplantation, or Dr. Tara Lauriat’s blog about how clinical trials can help people with depression or bipolar disorder, our readers are offered a personal and informative lens on what is usually very challenging terrain to navigate.
I also wanted to give a shout out to Emilia, Saswati and Mandira for their informative stories of new medicines, profiles of people who have been cured of their diseases or their posts sharing with our readers, personal accounts of their own family members who have been affected with Alzheimers disease and how they coped with the disease.
Last but not least, I wanted to give a very warm welcome to Pat Killingsworth who has graciously agreed to allow us to post his blogs on our site. Pat is a Multiple Myeloma survivor but you wouldn’t know he’s done battle with this complex cancer. Pat is a force of nature and has made it his mission to educate other Multiple Myeloma sufferers so that they may avoid some of the challenges and pitfalls Pat has endured as exemplified in this blog.
In my biased, and perhaps not so humble opinion, there is nothing else like CureTalk on the web for increasing clinical trials awareness and it is due to the thoughtful efforts of our authors. We are committed to bringing even more clinical research related information, stories, insights and breaking news to our readers in 2011. So stay tuned as we continue to grow and inform our readers about the importance of clinical research. And yes, we thank you all for continuing to support us as TrialX.
